Bangladesh-Monsoon hits refugee camps in Cox’s Bazar (For the Media)
Over the past year, WFP’s engineers and partners have been conducting disaster risk reduction activities for cyclone and monsoon preparedness and have steadily improved camp conditions and humanitarian access. Activities focus on improving and establishing roads, strengthening and clearing drains, reinforcing bridges in the camps, and reforestation. We have constructed roads and bridges, stabilized slopes and prepared new land for construction of safer settlements. Those in the most vulnerable living situations have been relocated to safer, newly developed land in the camps.
